With this new screen upgrade, the OnePlus prime focus is to provide the largest screen possible without making the device big and bulky to hold.


Design

With the design of OnePlus 6, the company has done some of the boldest and ambitious design changes in the body, which has resulted in a perfect balance of Simplicity, Comfort, and Quality in design. 

The design is clean and uncluttered providing space to incorporate a bigger display. For a perfect symmetry, the front camera on the OnePlus 6 sits in the middle.

For making the device easy and comfortable to hold, OnePlus 6 has smoothly rounded corners and a gently curved back. 

The five-layered film 1 micrometer thick underneath Corning Gorilla Glass 5 at the back adds smoothness, pristine, desirability and elegance to the device making the device look more premium. The Glass back is crafted without compromise.

Mirror Black will have an all-glass body

The OnePlus approach of using glass instead of metal in the body chassis is the reason that Glass provides better transmission of radio waves through it that in turn helps in improved networks and connectivity. 

And the malleability of Glass is far more than metal that allows the manufacturers to get their perfect desired body design. And moreover, Glass also gives a premium look of Ceramic. 
OnePlus 6 is beautiful and functional at the same time.

Using Glass instead of metal doesn't make OP 6 fragile as the glass used is the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that is made to absorb high-intensity shocks.

Speed

Speed is often underrated and generalized as just another spec. But that is not the case with OnePlus, as OnePlus devices are known for their speedy and fluid performance all over the world. It is often considered the iPhone of the Android industry. And with speed, OnePlus 6 is no exception. In fact, its the device that is being marketed as "The Speed You Need". 

Speed is something that becomes one of the biggest pain points for smartphone users, months after they purchase their smartphone. The devices become slow and sluggish as time passes, getting on the nerves of the users. But OnePlus is one such manufacturer who know how to keep their devices running fast and fluid for long times.
OnePlus has invested a lot in optimizing the speed of their devices. And to achieve this OnePlus has optimized the hardware and the software for smoother and faster experience. 

Hardware

OnePlus 6 runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Processor which has 30% faster processing and graphics performance being 10% more power efficient. It provides faster network connectivity to up to 4*4 MIMO and is capable of giving you a speed of 1Gbps. 

OnePlus 6 comes with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB UFS2.1 of onboard storage. The device also comes with fast dash charging that can give your phone's battery a full day juice on a half-an-hour charge (that's no surprise though). OnePlus 6 has face unlock that takes 0.4s to unlock your device.

Software

Frequent software updates are what every smartphone user desires but only a few, and not to forget that too only Pixel and iPhone users get the privilege of installing as soon as an update hits. Android's fragmentation has always been an issue. But OnePlus Oxygen OS which is the closest skin to stock Android is always among the few OEM's which gets the fastest and almost unaltered software updates. 
Oxygen OS is not cluttered up with myriad pre-installed apps and hence provide true Android experience to its user. Oxygen OS has undergone 200 optimizations. Some of the key optimizations of the Oxygen OS is the Faster App Launch, Caching for more used apps and overdraw reduction.



Proving frequent software updates is always on the priority list of OnePlus and hence OnePlus 6 is no exception. Therefore, OnePlus 6 is going to be one of the first Android devices in the world to get Android P Developers preview update. So all the tech developers and enthusiasts those who wanna test drive the features on the new Android P can go to the OnePlus website and download the update.



Gaming Mode

Previously when you set your phone's profile to Gaming Mode, it blocked notifications from background apps when you were playing your favorite game. With improvements in the gaming mode, now the games will launch faster as the data and processing power for the game you are playing is prioritized. It does so by automatically limiting the CPU and data usage of the background apps by concentrating all the device's power to provide you best game experience.


Camera

The camera is one of the most used features on a smartphone and for few, it is the only buying factor. So this thing needs to be checked properly in order to capture the moments right and in the right light.
OnePlus previous devices have featured some amazing camera dynamics both as hardware and software. 

One of the major problems that any smartphone camera incurs during its usage is getting a perfect shot in low light conditions. With OnePlus 6, the company has added Optical Image Stabilization  (OIS) to the hardware of its camera. Which means now taking low light pictures with proper exposure, stability, more details and less noise, is possible with the new OnePlus 6. The OnePlus primary lens is 16MP and 20MP secondary lens both of which have f/1.7 aperture and primary lens being Optically stabilized.

Portrait mode has always been a hot favorite and most talked about feature among photo buffs. Guess what? It's even better and faster on the OnePlus 6. Now you no longer have to wait between taking a portrait and viewing it. In the new portrait mode, the secondary sensor helps the camera to judge the distance of the object from the camera and thus distinguishing the foreground from the background.

New Portrait Mode Effects have been added to the portrait mode like hearts, flares, and stars.

Another new add-on in the camera department is the "Slow Motion". Unlike in other high-end smartphones, OnePlus 6 lets you record a footage of around a minute from which you can choose your favorite part of the video and "slo-mo" it. At 480fps, OnePlus 6 is the only smartphone available in the market right now, which can shoot "slow-motion" video at such a high frame rate and for this long.

Video Editor

There also a video editor now using which you can crop, add filters and also add background music to your creations. You got the best part of the video? Great! Now lets quickly edit and update it on the social network. No need for a laptop or a PC.

Price

Pricing has always been the plus point in the OnePlus franchise. The fair pricing module on which the company functions has always been the deal breaker. And with OnePlus 6, the company has continued to stick to the plan and follow the trend.

The OnePlus 6 will be available in two variants, Mirror Black and Midnight Black, starting May 22. 

The Limited Edition Silk White variant will be available for purchase on June 5. 

And The OnePlus x Marvel Avengers Limited Edition will cost you 44,999 Rupees ( $660 ) and will be available for purchase from May 29.
